Beneficial for both teams.

Near term: it appears Carolina is all in this season. Gutsy trade.

Long term: Miami gets started on the rebuilding process.

I'd move Howard to the DL instead of the FS. Unless you're playing cover 2 the entire time, two slow safeties are a liability. But I can see how this trade works out for both teams.

Can an undersized DL be effective immediately? Otherwise, Carolina looks like it’s in it to win it now.

Yes, but in limited play. The most I've seen someone gain or lose weight during TC is 25-30 pounds. By game 6 or so, a DB that starts in the 200-220 range can be effective on the DL.

Howard is at 241#. He'll hit game weight by the end of preseason.
